Coming Soon

A roast-battle-style compliment contest where comedians compete to see who can compliment one another in this showdown of sweetness, this clash of consideration, this barrage of benevolence. Playing off of the idea of roasts, Boast Rattle has two comedians go head-to-head, delivering alternating blows of the nicest order. One lucky crowd member who gets some on-the-spot boasting. One Champion of Charity, Master of Magnanimity.

Fresh off the sets of Showtime’s much-anticipated I’m Dying Up Here and the Comedy Central hit Workaholics, Erik Griffin makes his triumphant return to OFF-JFL, bringing his hilarious blend of observations on life, love, and self-evaluation to the stage.

NYC’s roughest survival of the fittest live comedy show comes to Montreal! It's Open Mic meets a Roast as a crop of inexperienced comedy rookies take the stage for the first time in front of a large audience hoping to get laughs, while a panel of brutal comedy headliners sit in judgment, ready to ring in with some tough “advice.” It's Tell a Joke or Be a Joke as Montreal’s own go up against a panel of Comedy’s toughest critics. It’s confrontational, it’s crass, it’s raucous, and it’s an absolute blast.
